Exchange 2007 Public Foler Permission

Hi,

I am running exchange 2007/outlook 2003. We have several calendars under public folder. I am the exchange admin. There are few calendars that were created by users via outlook. I am now trying to modify permission on them. When I right cllick and go to properties, I only see general, home page, and summary tab. I do not see administration, forms and permissions tab like I am able to with some other calendars. I am tying to take ownership of all these calendars and be able to control permission, either via outlook or exchange console. Any advise is appreciated.

Thanks,
Chaz

You can go through ..
--Logon to your 'Exchange 2007' server.

--Open the 'Exchange Management Shell'.

--Type the below, replaceing 'public folder name' with your public folder name/path and you must keep the \ at the front of it and also replace 'username' with the username:

"Add-PublicFolderClientPermission -Identity "\public folder name" -AccessRights Owner -User username

That's it, just repeat for any other public folders that you wish to change the permissions on.

The above example is to assign Owner permissions to the user, but you can replace Owner with the below:

None
Owner

Editor
PublishingAuthor

if you want to inherit permissions also on all child public folders then following command is for you
adduserstopfrecursive.ps1 -toppublicfolder "<Parent Public Folder Name" -user "<User or group name>" -permissions –<permissions>
